Lawrence D. Jaeger | Dermatologist NYC

Selecting a dermatologist can sometimes be as daunting as the skin issue that is affecting you. The decision of where to start or who to look for can take a host of avenues. However, there’s a basic foundation you should seek for with your medical provider, like a dermatologist. The better you can distinctly acknowledge those best traits, the more you can assure that you’re in the hands of a great dermatologist. S/He should provide a foundation that encompasses the following qualities and more.


  • The best credentials: Any doctor with a medical degree can start a dermatology practice, but only certified physicians boast additional years of supervised study and have passed rigorous exams.
  • Excellent bed-side care: “Your dermatologist should take the time to explain things, address your concerns, and explain treatment plans, as well as any tests you may have to undergo,” says David Bank, MD, president of the New York State Society for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery.
  • No pitching: The dermatologist and the office staff should never aggressively push products, treatments, or other remedies that don’t specifically address your personal concerns.
  • After-hours care: You should never feel left in the dark. Whether you’re experiencing an allergic reaction following a treatment or you have a pressing question about it, there should be a way for you to reach the dermatologist during evenings and on weekends.
